russian sage and black walnut

I was wondering if anyone has experienced a quick wilting of the russian sage. It grows fine, but then within 2 days the branch will die. My neighbors black walnut is about 15ft. away. I have moved the russian sage to another area, but would like to have a r. sage in the back yard. Thanks

Russian sage performs better in well-drained, alkaline soil in full sun.

It grows fine, but then within 2 days the branch will die.
Are you planting new plants each time or is this just new growth on the existing plant?

I have moved the russian sage to another area,
Is the plant in a pot?

russian sage die off

We have slightly acidic soil, but I do sprinkle lime under the akaline lovers everyso often. The branches just keep coming up on the bush. They look healthy until it sprouts, and then after 2 days curls up and withers. Planted in the ground by the river and is in sandy well draining soil. Thanks

Plants affected by being grown near black walnut trees exhibit symptoms such as foliar yellowing, wilting, and eventual death. Avoiding planting near black walnut trees or gardening in raised beds are options. As indicated, Russian sage prefers sunny, well-drained soil, and drier conditions.
